Location

Casa Flora is located in the beautiful hamlet of Minuta which is situated at the end of the promontory enjoying wonderful views over Ravello, the coast below, the mountains and the sea at a distance; it comprises a series of medieval buildings built around the medieval church of Our Lady of the Assumption.

Being Minuta the best starting point for walking tours, Casa Flora is the ideal place for people who enjoy country hill walks and the beautiful atmosphere around the house.

Within a few minutes walk is the heart of the village of Scala with coffee bars, restaurants, a grocer’s shop, open air cafés and the stop for the SITA bus that goes from Scala to Ravello, Amalfi and other towns on the Amalfi Coast.

The charming, medieval village of Scala, lies only 2 km far from Ravello. Its name means “ladder” or “flight of steps” in Italian, characteristic of this hill-top village which runs along the side of the Dragon Valley right above Amalfi and adjacent to Ravello. It is the oldest town on the Amalfi Coast and is the ideal location for people who enjoy country hill walks. Paths lead to seldom visited hamlets, small chapels and medieval ruins with stunning views over the coast and the valleys below.

Set in the middle of the Monti Lattari chain and dominated by the great mass of its medieval Cathedral, the commune of Scala is divided into six small hamlets or “borghi”: Scala center, San Pietro, Santa Caterina, Campidoglio, Pontone and Minuta, each rich in history, hidden paths and enchanting views. This is a timeless gem and favoured location for visitors seeking a truly authentic medieval atmosphere, traditional restaurants, fresh products and fresh mountain air, “far from the madding crowds” of other local tourist resorts.

From the quay of Amalfi, there are ferries and hydrofoils to the other villages along the coast as well as to the Islands of Capri and Ischia, to Sorrento and Naples and also rental boats to explore the surrounding coastline, and visit the many small grottoes.
